About BeaksandBobbins

Sales 13,282
On Etsy since 2013

Welcome to BeaksandBobbins, original and unique hand embroideries.

I have been practicing and exploring the art of hand embroidery for some time now, inspired greatly by a class I joined a couple of years ago. The ideas, techniques and encouragement I have got from the group has offered me a wonderful wealth of inspiration.

I like my images to have a sense of humour and to want to bring a smile to the viewer.

I particularly like creating pieces that have meaning to the owner and which celebrate their own unique personality, situation or experiences.
Hence I am very happy to work to produce custom orders which incorporate images, ideas, materials or techniques that have a personal significance.

Thank-you for visiting BeaksandBobbins

I create hand embroideries using a wide range of materials. A lot of the pieces use material that have been given to me or found and I often like to use such materials as a starting point, collecting a palette of textures and colours around them.
I love being able to use bits of fabric that have had a previous life and being able to turn them into something new rather than them being simply thrown away, wasted and forgotten.
